The Name Space: EFF-Austin Meetup Monday, September 12th, 7:00pm, Capital Factory

“The US has confirmed it is finally ready to cede power of the internet’s naming system, ending the almost 20-year process to hand over a crucial part of the internet’s governance.” ~ Dave Lee, BBC News, http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-37114313

Attorney Scott McCullough will discuss the policy and law aspects of the internet naming system. Andrew Donoho will be discussing the basic technical hierarchy and how countries get involved with limiting access to the name space. I.e. how a government can block Twitter.

Should managing the global name space be the responsibility of the technorati? Or governments? How can we prevent dictatorships or religious autocracies from getting veto control over the administration of global top level domains? (Because of delegation, they can block the DNS at their borders.)
